Track Name: Long Way Back
Long Way Back THawley Binion music BMI © 2015

It’s a long way back to feeling good

It’s a long way back to feeling better

The rain came down hard and it did not stop

Now my soul’s out looking for it’s home

My love was taken be the ill moves of a stranger

It’s a sad lonely place where I stand

It’s one step at a time for a broken heart to mend

It’s a long way back to feeling good

When I go swimming in that deep green sea

I think of all the many ways in which one could easily slip away

But I always return to that shining shoreline

Because that long cold decent is simply no way to die

It’s hard not to question the universes hand

And the twisted ways of the law

So I rebuild my faith one day at a time

It’s a long way back to feeling good

Everyone I know has something to say

And it goes in one ear and out the other

While I appreciate that, there’s no good reason why

Someone killed my baby and it’s just all wrong

When I go swimming in that deep green sea

I think of all the many ways in which one could easily slip away

But I always return to that shining shoreline

Because that long cold decent is simply no way to die
Track Name: Tecopa California
Tecopa, California tHawleyBinion music BMI © 2015

Tell me how does a boy, living in Tecopa

Not die of exposure before he’s even reached the legal age to drive

And who do you know that can get you out of town son

Well I found you standing in the middle of the road

Hoping I would stop and ask

Stop and Ask

Is that wheel chair there the only thing you’ve got round here to entertain you

In this god forsaken desert where’s there’s seemingly no one else around for

miles

And what do you do the day through to keep your mind from abandoning you

I can see you’re very fond of spinning circles round in that chair

That dusty old wheel chair

On that Wednesday that I saw you I couldn’t figure why you weren’t in school

It was just another Wednesday, pressing hard down on that old Spanish trail

Here and Shoshoni, the only gas between Death Valley and Las Vegas

And I’m sure they’ll come a time soon here in your life

When you face out and start your walking

Your walking

Where will you go the day your wings come in

Will you fly or flail around Tecopa for a while

Boy have you ever been kissed, ever had an urge beyond the torture

That is the glow from that city of fools spilling into your nights

Here in Tecopa

How will you rise from here with nary a means to take you

Pray you get washed out, drowned out come a sorely needed rain

12 years old and the burden of your being dying a slow burn

And I bet if you could you’d put a motor on that thing you’re riding now

That dusty old wheel chair

Hey little kid I’m sorry

Hey little kid I’m sorry I never stopped to ask

How do you cope How do you cope

When you’re living, slowly dying

Here in Tecopa California

Tecopa California

How do you cope, How do you cope

When you’re living ever burning

Here in Tecopa California
Track Name: Walking In Circles
Walking In Circles

I’m walking in circles over you

I’m walking in circles missing you

The moment you leave here

The whirling begins

I’m walking in circles all over again

I tell myself

Every time you fly

It’s never too long

It’s just for a while

That you leave me here

Left counting the days

And spinning around

With tears on my face

What makes me fall

When you say goodbye

I make all these plans

And then they go by

I can’t seem to move here

Except towards the floor

And I’m walking in circles

On this side of the door

I’m walking in circles over you

I’m walking in circles missing you

The moment you leave here

The whirling begins

I’m walking in circles all over again

The mornings are hopeful

And the night times are too

The loneliest times are the long afternoon’s

When you can’t be here and I can’t be there

When everyone’s somewhere with no time to space

I’m walking in circles

I’m walking in circles

I’m walking in circles

All over again
Track Name: Grace In Mid City
It was day time in the door way

It was nighttime in the bar

And I said to you there

From the opposite chair

There are so many questions in this life

But I wasn’t talking about Louisiana

I wasn’t talkin’ devastation

I wasn’t talkin’ common friends

I wasn’t talking about the cruel weather

I wasn’t talkin’ politicians

I wasn’t talkin’ faulty ground

What I was referring to was you and me

I could of brought up all that happened

I could of brought up all the lies

I could of started on things that went down twenty years ago

I guess I didn’t really feel like talkin’

Standin’ in that bar Mid City New Orleans

Where the day would quickly turn to night

Night would bring a whiskey round to the table

Whiskey’d bring a memory to mind

And I saw it for myself, I’d best keep things here tidy

But what I really wanted to tell you

Is about the shape you left me in

And what I really wanted to ask you

Is how you made it all right in your mind

And my dreams went on forever

And in spite of all the things gone wrong

I stayed long in one place in love with you

So we just talked about the music

And we embraced the atmosphere

And we drank a toast to all of those around us

It wasn’t time for stacking up the losses

I didn’t see a point in bending ears

So we just kept all our talk about Lousianna
Track Name: These Days
These Days t Hawley binion music © 1993

I’ve taken up reading

I’ve taken up sittin’ by this lamp

The one that stands nearest to the telephone

But I swear I ain’t waitin’ for that phone to ring

It’s not that I’ve grown heavy

It’s just the way I feel since you set me free

It’s not that my clothes don’t fit anymore

It’s just that I’m still carrying your love around with me

It’s just the way I feel

It’s just the way I feel

It’s just the way I feel these days

Blue is the condition when one of us is crying

And the rain falls down

Dark must be the world all around

As both of us are payin’ now for the broken hearts

It’s just the way I feel

It’s just the way I feel

It’s just the way I feel these days
Track Name: Orphan Boy
Orphan Boy

An orphan boy keeps me at an arms distance

He won’t give me straight answers, no and he set me up for clues

He makes me want to shake him but he’d probably disappear

He’s not much for hanging out and he makes it very clear

For if an orphan boy were to fall in love with a girl

Surely this would equal his merciless and quiet demise

And he says to me “girl don’t you know when your contemplating loving an orphan

You’ve got nothing to lose but your own sweet little day dream heart”

An orphan boy can steal you with his assembly of thoughts

And I must admit it was his story that slayed me at the start

And it’s his glory in the portrayal that keeps him moving on

Just a little of your sight, just beyond your touch

And I crave his kiss oh, like it’s the last kiss on earth

And he moves like a tide with a mood he can welcome himself

And before you know it he’s packing it out and I feel myself fall

Feeling like an orphan too cause he’s all I want

To love an orphan boy

Its like trying to feed a roving man

And on days when he can feel his heart slip into the right place

He likes to believe that it’s his mama still keeping an eye on her little man

And when he’s lonely he pulls me in closer and the deeper I crawl

To see that orphan boy break down and ball

Like a baby in my arms

I want to love you, hold you close and warm

I want to cover you up, keep you for my own

Oh, I want you, I want you, I want you

Orphan boy

“Yes only love can break your heart”

“Yes only love can break your heart”

“Yes only love can break your heart”

“Yes only love can break your heart”

Orphan boy
Track Name: Green Velvet Coat
Green Velvet Coat

There’s more in the words that you don’t say

Than there is that smile that you send

You always deny me In Your Green Velvet Coat

I’m aware when it’s not in the room

And I can feel when it’s coming on

Would you bait a perfect stranger just to watch me watch you down

I can’t seem to make up my mind

To walk away or take more of your sweet pain

Or tell you what’s really killing me in drunk and cryptic undertones

Envy is the color of his jacket

And the same goes for these eyes that burn

We were like fire in the lowlands

Oh the heat and the whir

We knew better and we minded our gap

Still we did wonder up to that rail awfully close

When we spoke of steppin’ up danger

And this weary track that we both chose

Always devising a plan in your

Your green velvet coat

Oh this ride won’t be over with too soon

It takes a thief to find her own kind

I rode with the master

I stepped down to the platform

I checked my bags and I could feel it go

Pull away train, pull away heart

Like a paid for ticket folded in half

And sittin’ in the breast pocket of that green velvet coat

We arrived our final destinations

But with how much grace in tact, from here its hard to say

Oh but I’ll remember a lot of things that were good enough about it

And I’ll remember his boyish face

Where I stand’s a long way

And I can still feel his goodbye hand

Oh but in my mind I’m still beside him

Where the rail parallels the road

And in my mind I’m still ridin’ along side his green velvet coat
Track Name: Call Me
Call Me

There was all day long for me to think of you

There’s all night long still for you to call

It’s a lifelong dream that I’ve been adding on to

It’s gonna be a long, long way when I fall from this wire

There’s all night long still for you to call

This house is just a place for holding things

That don’t mean nothing to a life now or then

It’s just a ground from where to run the phone line, tie line, life line

Hoping that you’ll call and you’ll reel me in

I’m on the wire

There’s all night long still for you to call

Morning is a sweet threshold of hope

But it comes an awful drag in the afternoon

Waning sun, waning hours, waning hearts

It’s so lonely here since I’ve not heard from you

Out on this wire

There’s all night long still for you to call, call me

There’s all night long still for you to call
Track Name: Burden Song
All night long in my dreams

I pushed a broom all through my sleep

I pushed that broom, but never did my wood floors come clean

All night in my dreams

I pushed that broom all through my sleep

All these years an anchor out

And through the years I’ve dragged it round

Ready down, and steady as she goes

How deep no one knows

All this life with an anchor out

Rarely able, seldom right

Always putting up a fight

That devil man, well he lives here with me

Would you care to take a seat

That devil man, well he lives here with me

I found a bird pushed from the nest

I put her in my pocket vest

I took her home, I fixed her wing

I gave that sweet bird, a pretty little song to sing

I loved that bird, I loved her best

I kept he wrapped up close, always near to my chest

I loved that bird, then she set me free
Track Name: My Satellite
My Satellite

Such sweet relief you bring me

No brighter star could save me

I look for my sweet relief

Deeper love I needn’t look for

Only a fool would stay fixed on mars

I look for my sweet

My satellite

Sweet satellite

Bright satellite

My one and only

Sweet satellite
